"At present we are on the outside of the world, the wrong side of the door. We discern the freshness and purity of the morning, but they do not make us fresh and pure. We cannot mingle with the splendours we see. But all the leaves of the New Testament are rustling with the rumour that it will not always be so. Some day, God willing, we shall get in."

What happened to last Friday?
Would you like to know why I did not post last Friday?
Because I was rehearsing for a killer show with The Drop Bears (and Company), of course. We're all... like, a band... you know. Here's the setup:
Sam: vocals, piano, harmonica
Mark: guitar, acoustic & electric
Katheryne: vocals, tambourine
Anna Kate: vocals, kick drum (in this case, my boots)
Last year The Drop Bears (Mark and Sam) performed a show for our church's Valentine's banquet, and I joined them for two songs (and Company). This year, we were back, with the fabulous addition of Katheryne. Friday night was spent determining the set list, staging the show, and of course, practicing the songs. It was a late night, but that's how musicians role. At least that's how we roll, since we require an empty building in the dead of night for a proper rehearsal. :)
The show was the following Saturday night, and it was a good one. We had a nice arrangement of classics (Pretty Woman), indie hits (Emmylou by First Aid Kit), tragedies (Boots of Spanish Leather by Bob Dylan) and a high energy soulful hit (Home by Edward Sharpe).
Emmylou with Katheryne
yes, my boots really were the kick drum...
For a little country church in Mississippi, I'd say we threw down! :)
